Additional Comments

I tested both the Vista and XP versions of the installer. The Vista version extracts, but fails to run saying the computer needs to be updated, probably because Wine doesn't report Vista as having SP1. The XP version starts the installer fine, but it tries to download and run the Malicious software removal tool before it will install IE8. The installer fails to get the tool, so it "finishes" without installing IE8. The cancel button doesn't work there (no idea why- nothing shows up in the terminal), so I had to use CTRL-C to stop it.

regedit /tmp/IE8.reg

2. Run winetricks -q urlmon mshtml
